The KZN Branch of SAIMechE invites you to attend a technical evening at UKZN

Topic: Pumps & How they Affect Your Bottom Line

The maintenance of rotating equipment at an average plant constitutes 60%-70% of the maintenance budget. With this in mind, it is essential, that we not look only at maintenance costs, but the total life-cycle cost of the equipment. This presentation will cover basic, real world approaches to managing equipment failure frequency and the impact that it has on the company's bottom line. The presentation will cover various aspects on pumps,  including the technical specification, design, and maintenance. 

About The Presenter 

Bill Hadley is an Engineer with over 40 years of industrial experience in Oil, Gas, Chemical, Petrochemical and Power industries. He has worked and still works in various industrial sectors in both Upstream and Downstream Oil & Gas areas involved in engineering consulting, maintenance, and troubleshooting services to the petrochemical, oil, gas, energy and allied industries.

His skills include the technical specification, design, and maintenance of rotating and static equipment such as pumps, turbines, compressors, tanks vessels and piping. He is also involved in troubleshooting, making use of computer interfaces to assess and rectify equipment defects. He has also been part of a task teams responsible for reviewing the in-house Engineering Standards of oil refineries to bring them into line with current international practices. 

Mr. Hadley has been a consultative resource to the reliability departments of a number of oil refineries and played a key role in Reliability Improvement Programs in those facilities. He was this resource to his clients, onshore, prior to taking up a similar position in the offshore oil and gas industry in West Africa. In his role as “principal consultative resource for equipment reliability" he worked closely with his client's process engineering team in providing integrated solutions to process and machinery reliability problems. He also conducts training in the application of specialized rotating equipment hardware such as pumps, mechanical seals, compressors and turbines, to the production process. He has a “hands on” working knowledge of the Upstream Oil & Gas process industry as well as oil refinery processes and the hardware used in those processes. 

Mr. Hadley is a graduate in Mechanical Engineering from the Durban University of Technology and he is a Past President of the South African Institution of Mechanical Engineers (SAIMechE).
